About the property

Spacious Designer villa - sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms plus pool & garden

This great villa, completed in 2009 and featured in February 2010's 'A Place in The Sun' magazine, is situated on a large private plot on a modern development with views over the nature reserve.

It has a private pool (6m x 4m) and sleeps 6. There are 3 beautiful bedrooms – a double and 2 twins (with wooden floors and large balconies). The spacious open plan living/dining area is furnished in a contemporary style with Italian leather sofas and a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo. English FreeSat channels are available plus a library of DVDs. Large sliding doors open onto the terrace and pool allowing you to sit either in the shade or by the pool in the sun. There is a fully equipped kitchen and 3 bathrooms. Bed linen and towels are provided.

The villa is situated within a relaxing, protected pine and eucalyptus forest and there's a fantastic Blue Flag family beach 20 minutes walk away, a cycle track and boardwalk around the lagoon and world class golf a short drive away. It's a great place!

The Obidos Lagoon: The proximity of the stunning Obidos Lagoon to the villa (just 5 minutes walk) makes this location truly special and unique. When we visit the villa, no day feels complete without a stroll around the lagoon’s perimeter on the cycle path and boardwalk. The landscape is an ever-changing delight and one of the most tranquil and uplifting places I know.

Wild flowers, dune grasses and aquatic birds abound in this protected fragile ecosystem whilst fisherman’s huts and their traditional colourful boats (batieras) are a reminder that the lagoon is still a place of work for many locals.

Beautiful Beaches: You are spoilt for choice for fabulous beaches with several in the immediate area.

The closest beach is the huge Blue Flag beach near the mouth of the lagoon, Praia do Bom Sucesso, about 20 minutes walk (or 5 minutes by car) from the villa along the edge of the lagoon. The lagoon waters are calm, protected from the Atlantic waves and the whole family can swim safely here. There are a few restaurants and bars, a small grocery store, cafe and a few shops. The Rio Cortico restaurant has superb views from the top of the headland overlooking the beach. The Atlantic beach at the mouth of the lagoon around the headland has a backdrop of cliffs and is wild and rugged... perfect for a bracing walk.

Just 3 minutes drive away is the beautiful sheltered cove of Praia Rio Cortico with its great laid-back beach restaurant and bar serving the fresh catch of the day.

A 10 minute drive brings you to the stunning Atlantic beach at Praia D’El Rey with a beach snack bar and 5* hotel facilities.

The new hotel and clubhouse at the Royal Obidos Golf Resort both serve amazing top quality cuisine in cool, modern surroundings.

Fabulous Golfing Location: Thtree of the regions top championship golf courses, The Royal Obidos, Bom Sucesso and Praia D’El Rey are less than 10 minutes drive from the villa. Two further stunning courses, The Golden Eagle and The Campo Real are only a 20 minute drive away.

You can make significant saving on green fees for all these courses by booking in advance via online booking services

Why Debbie Kendall chose Vau (Parish)

The Obidos lagoon is a beautiful place to relax and it is still relatively undiscovered. The Blue Flag beach is huge and it is never crowded - even in August. There's no hi-rise development here, just local people, local food and a laid back atmosphere - all surrounded by a protected pine and eucalyptus nature reserve. Walking around the lagoon on the cycle path is a daily ritual for me and the scenery is ever-changing with wild flowers, birds, fishermen and people searching for clams - a local delicacy. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

What makes this villa unique

Portuguese beaches are renowned for their beauty. Many people are familiar with the rugged Atlantic coast however the Obidos lagoon is relatively unknown, even though it is the largest lagoon in Europe, and families can always find a calm, shallow place that is safe for children to play. It is such an easy going place and the local food and wine is cheap, plentiful and delicious... from a chilled beach or lagoon-side cafe to a treat at a 5* golf resort or an authentic restaurant in Obidos old town.

We don't feel the need to rush around when we visit our villa but there's loads to see and do in the local area if you can drag yourself away from the pool and the beach.

Week away in the sun

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have been to Portugal and we had a lovely time, the villia was clean and tidy with all the mod cons you could have wanted. The location of the villa is slightly out of the way and you do need a car but its in an amazing spot, 25 mins walk form the lovley beach and a few beautiful resturants, the main super market is a 30 min drive and in (Obidos) so stock up on all your essantials.

i would definatly recommend this to all friends and family.

Perfect thank you for a lovley holiday.

Lovely base for exploring the Silver Coast

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable week in this clean and well maintained, spacious villa which has a plentiful supply of kitchen equipment. It is in a very quiet residential area near a beautiful lagoon which has a track for walking or running round the edge. There are a couple of good restaurants about a mile away at the end of the lagoon near the sea. We also enjoyed visiting the very pretty walled town of Obidos and the surf beaches and bars at Baleal, Peniche and Nazare. There is an impressive BBQ in the garden on which we cooked the fish caught by the boys on their fishing trip from Peniche while the girls took a boat trip to the island of Berlangas. I would definitely recommend this villa to family and friends.

A great place to stay, relax and enjoy the beaches

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cleanliness, layout and generally high standards of this villa. It was well maintained with good facilities. Even in April we managed a few swims in the pool and you are very close to some beautiful beaches and historic towns. Evening walks to the nearby lagoon were also very enjoyable and there were a number of good restaurants a short drive away. I would certainly recommend the villa and area to friends. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Portugal

The accommodation was of the highest standard.

Spotlessly clean with excellent facilities.

The pack provided with information on the surrounding area & restaurants was very useful.

I will be recommending to friends and family & hope to return soon

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa for 9 nights for my family (me, my husband, my 3 years old daughter and my father) in September 2012. Everything was just perfect! The villa offers all you need to feel like home, is very stylish, all new and well equipped. It is also very well located and a very good start point for exploring the beautiful area around, especially the wonderful town Obidos. The beaches nearby and the lagoon offer a lot of places for enjoying the sun and relaxing. We will certainly go back for another vacation in this beautiful place again!

Lovely Relaxing break in - Spacious Villa for 6

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely spacious Villa this is - the Master bedroom & bathroom ( with bath & shpower ) are very spacious with a lovely outdoor area..the upstairs twin has 2 balconies and the downstairs opens on to the pool / garden so everyone was happy with their own space with their own shower / toilet.

The open plan living area was plenty big enough,a fun selection of DVDs for all the family, all digital mod cons and the garden space well kept, all you needed in the kitchen,. plus the extra nice touches of cling-film, serviettes , salt & pepper etc

We babrbequed most days with amazing prices in the local supermarket for fresh fish & steak.

I really liked this part of Portugal - a car is essential as there is so much to discover within easy driving range and its fun to try different beaches, Our favourites were Foz, a popular place with the locals, great atmosphere at the beach bars! Praia del Rae, a wild bay with lifeguards but you need to take your own picnic & beers! Also Baleal surfing beach was very cool...

My older kids enjoyed the go karting at Bomberral & the water park at Nazare ( ideal for 7 - 17 yr olds, but with a young kids pool too ) and made a pleasant change from the beach - beware of not taking enough sun cream & insect repellent.

Obidos is very special - you can walk around the narrow ( and somewhat precarious castle walls ) which was a highlight for the lads.

Beautiful area - the smell of the pine trees is divine and all the locals very friendly..I could have stayed for much longer and still found new places to enjoy.

You can book this Villa with confidence - above expectations. :0)

Less than 1 hour’s drive from Lisbon Airport, the Silver Coast still retains a sense of being undiscovered and unspoiled. The villa at Perola Da Lagoa is situated by the Obidos Lagoon – a large sheltered coastal inlet with its sweeping expanse of family-friendly Blue Flag beaches .

A nature reserve surrounds the development with a network of trails and cycle paths around the lagoon. Bicycles are available to hire locally or try stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking or wind surfing.

The Silver coast is renowned for its medieval towns and authentic fishing villages. Close by is Obidos, a lovely walled town with great bars and restaurants and artisan’s shops lining its cobbled streets.

Spend your days exploring the many wonderful beaches, both Atlantic coast and lagoon-side. Enjoy fresh, local food at one of the beach-side bars and restaurants or treat yourselves to some 5 star luxury at one of the nearby hotel or golf resort's restaurants.

Or pamper yourself at by booking a spa treatment at the Obidos Lagoon Wellness Centre

For golfers: The new Royal Obidos Golf Resort is less than 500m from the villa. The world class cliff-top Praia D'El Rey golf course and the new championship Bom Sucesso golf course are only a short drive away.

The Royal Obidos Golf Resort: 500m from villa. A wonderful new course designed by Seve Ballesteros. A beautiful course that will challenge players of all levels with cascading lakes and streams and a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. Clubhouse, restaurant, bar and pro-shop.

One of the most picturesque golf courses in Europe, set in extensive grounds of pine forest and undulating dunes with spectacular views over the Atlantic.
